New Discovery The Missing Segment Of The Jimmy Darnell Film
« on: September 13, 2018, 09:08:04 PM »
This is the “missing” segment of Jimmy Darnell’s footage.

The segment showing the press buses on Houston appears in the 2003 ABC documentary “The Kennedy Assassination: Beyond Conspiracy” during the segment about the HSCA acoustics evidence after the Weigman film.

Richard Trask published a still image from the film (the segment Darnell filmed while running down Elm) on page 34 of the color edition of “That Day in Dallas.”

Darnell is also visible in at least two or three frames of Couch’s film running alongside  Camera Car 3 while filming.

What are the circumstances surrounding this? Why was it missing?

Allow me to elaborate, by “missing” I am referring to the fact that the vast majority of clips of the Jimmy Darnell film do not contain the sequence of footage showing a.) the press buses backed up on Houston Street or b.) Camera Cars 1 and 2 moving down Elm (Darnell shot this after he jumped from Camera Car 3 and started running down the street). Most versions either begin with a modified version that shows the front of the Texas School Book Depository (nearly identical to the Malcolm Couch film) but exercise the footage with the press buses and Darnell filming while running, or other versions edit all these sequences out and cut directly to the scene on the north side of Elm Street showing Bill Newman pounding his fist on the ground.

An interesting note to all this is that while Richard Trask reprinted a frame of the Elm Street sequence in 1998’s “That Day in Dallas,” his description of the Darnell film in 1993’s landmark text “Pictures of the Pain” does not mention any footage previous to that of the Newmans as I mentioned above.
